Default Help with Math Problem Please!?

Please explain how to do this:Name the smallest counting number by which to multiply the first number so that the product is a multiple of the second number.Example: 2 x 3 x 5; 2 x 3 (squared) x 7Solution: What factors of the second number are not factors of the first number? 3 and 7. Therefore, 3 x 7, or 21.Thanks, not looking for LCM though.
